cut - remove sections from each line of files
Print selected parts of lines from each FILE to standard output.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
- -b, --bytes=LIST
- output only these bytes
- -c, --characters=LIST
- output only these characters
- -d, --delimiter=DELIM
- use DELIM instead of TAB for field delimiter
- -f, --fields=LIST
- output only these fields; also print any line
that contains no delimiter character, unless
the -s option is specified
- -s, --only-delimited
- do not print lines not containing delimiters
- use STRING as the output delimiter
the default is to use the input delimiter
- display this help and exit
- output version information and exit
Use one, and only one of -b, -c or -f. Each LIST is made up of one
range, or many ranges separated by commas. Each range is one of:
- N'th byte, character or field, counted from 1
- from N'th byte, character or field, to end of line
- from N'th to M'th (included) byte, character or field
- from first to M'th (included) byte, character or field
With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
